January 28, 2013

There are many great reasons to purchase a home in the southern Lancaster area. With a home in Peach Bottom or Quarryville, you can get out of the congestion of the cities without going too far away. A big advantage for parents in this area is that they can send their kids to the Solanco Public School District. These are just a few of the advantages of sending your kids to the Solanco School District:

Several School Options

A custom home in Bart, Colerain, Fulton, Eden, Drumore, East Drumore, Little Britain, or Providence townships in Quarryville Borough means your kids are eligible to go to one of these Solanco district schools:

  • Solanco High School
  • George A. Smith Middle School
  • Swift Middle School
  • Quarryville Elementary School
  • Providence Elementary School
  • Bart-Colerain Elementary School
  • Clermont Elementary School

A Solid Mission

The Solanco School District’s webpage states that “The mission of the Solanco School District is to develop responsible citizens and life-long learners by providing opportunities to maximize student academic performance in a safe and secure environment.”

How does Solanco do this? They challenge their students to help others. In the fall, the students run a drive to help replenish local food banks just in time for Thanksgiving. In order to help kids recognize bullying, Solanco showed a film about a bullied girl in Manheim as part of an anti-bullying forum.

Excellent Ratings

This excellent school district is ranked 268 out of Pennsylvania’s 572 school districts. SchoolDigger.com gave Solanco a respectable four out of five stars and rated Bart-Colerain Elementary School with five out of five stars.

Opportunities for Teachers

Educators can also take advantage of the great benefits of working for the Solanco School District including health care benefits, life insurance, travel reimbursement, and a 403(b) retirement plan. There is a smaller student to teacher ratio than in other Pennsylvania counties like Delaware County, Chester County, and Philadelphia.
